A woman's daughter had asked the local minister to come and pray with her
mother. When the minister arrived, he found the woman lying in bed with her
head propped up on two pillows. An empty chair sat beside her bed. The min-
ister assumed that the woman had been informed of his visit. I guess you were
expecting me, he said. 'No, who are you?' said the mother. The minister told her 101 W Sw annanoa Ave— Downtown Liberty
his name and then remarked, 'I saw the empty chair and I figured you knew I
was going to show up..' 'Oh yeah, the chair,' said the bedridden woman. Would

the old woman continued, ' until one day four years ago, my best friend said to

though. If my daughter saw
me talking to an empty
chair, she'd either have a
nervous breakdown or send
me off to the funny farm.' The
minister was deeply moved
by the story and encouraged
the old woman to continue on
the journey. Then he prayed
with her, anointed her with
oil, and returned to the
church. Two nights later the
daughter called to tell the minister that her mama had
died that afternoon. Did she die in peace?' he asked.
Yes, when I left the house about two o'clock, she
called me over to her bedside, told me she loved me
and kissed me on the cheek. When I got back from the
store an hour later, I found her .. But there was some-
thing strange about her death Apparently, just before
Mom died, she leaned over and rested her head on the
chair beside the bed. What do you make of that?' The
minister wiped a tear from his eye and said, 'I wish we
could all go like that.'

Prayer is one of the best free gi fts we receiv e.

I asked God for water, He gave me an ocean.

I asked God for a flower, He gave me a garden
I asked God for a friend, He gave me all of YOU...
If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

Quiet moments, worship God
Painful moments, trust God

Loflin Funeral Home Of Liberty 19th Annual Candlelight
Memorial Service Pulls Out All The Stops
Wow, 19 years of serving our area with professional services at the time
we need it the most. The loving and caring staff always has the right touch
to give. Well the giving does not stop at that time, for they continue to
give at the holidays when the times are the hardest for many families. On
Saturday November 21 at 6:00 pm they opened their doors to all the
families of the community that wanted to remember the great memories.
As you walked through the doors you where created by a warm smile. But
for staff is more than workers, they are local citizens that we live with on
a daily basis. The smiling staff member that we have shared joy, tears,
achievements and the list goes on. That is what sets Loflin Funeral Home
apart from the other businesses of their nature. As you passed in the en-
trance you received your candle for the service and made your way to the
Chapel that was transformed into one of the most festive rooms. Biltmore
Estate in Asheville could not hold a candle to the décor in the room. In the
front lobby was a beautiful Christmas that left you breath taken. As you
ventured into other areas of the building your eyes had to take a double
take. Tables lined up with an array of delectable food to touch anyones
taste buds. Then the prize
glory of the night, the light
from a near by light caught a
twinkle. I look to see what
could be twinkling so bright
and with glory. You see each
year Loflin Funeral Home
purchases just the right gift to
memorialize the passing of
loved ones. This years was
beautiful crafted glass angles
with name of the loved one
and their birth to passing dates
on this earth. A keepsake to
cherish for years and to certainly become a family heirloom. The program
for the night involved a welcome from Tyson Nixon, Manager, that thanked
all for coming. The night was filled with special music by Carla Ely, words
of hope and healing by Rev Eugene Dean. Tim Garrett and Tyson Nixon
read the names to those in attendance. The lighting of the candles were pre-
formed by Becky Canoy, Wynell Clapp, Larry Simmons, Jim Gailey and
Vicki Troxler. A simple note through out the night was , “ To Our Fami-
lies: Oh God, Bless our family and all its members and friends, bind us together by your love, Give us kindness
and patience to support each other, and wisdom in all we do. Let the gift of your peace
come into our hearts and remain with us. May we rejoice in your blessings for all our Great Christmas Gift
days, Amen” Others that helped from the funeral home was Sharon Fogleman,
Tony Foglman, Susan Foster and Hank Sanders. Thank you Loflin Funeral
Home for continuing your great service to our community.

God’s Song $40

You may see the title and wonder, God’s Song. What is he writing about now. Well
this past month a dear friend of mine sang at the Freedom Family Church. Several in
the area know her, it is the local talent of Aprille Miller. She allowed God to use her

gift of voice to speak to us all, but this time she did one that caught me by surprise.
You see she told us she had a unique song, that she felt came from God. It is a song
that is made up of parts of several of our favorite gospel songs. Aprille told us that

she sat there and just started to sing. One part of a song just fell beautiful in to the

next. As she sung her song, it was breath taking, the church was in full emotion from
XM or Sirius Radio, along with
how the song lines built the beautiful story of Gods Love. Aprille, I would like to say

The Liberty Library—Something For Everyone
Just this past week, our local library shined out. Well let me start from the beginning. Me and
friend of mine from church is helping the local boy scouts get their computer merit badge. By the
way, these young men amaze me, own how much they new about computers from scratch. Well
on to the story. I got to the next to the
last class session and realized that I had
about 15 boyscouts that all needed to be
on a computer at the same time.
Yikees….we only have two laptops.
Well that is when I remembered all the
computers that the Liberty Library had.
Well with out hast I called our friendly
librarian and with a twinkle in her eye,
she said, It is done. She closed down the
computer section for one night to allow
all the boyscouts to work on their com-
Liberty, NC puter merit badge. Well also that night,
Ph 622-2056 Carol, another friendly face of the Li-
brary, was working (even though it
Ph 362-4856 looked more like having fun) with a
group of young elementary school age
kids. They were working on decorations for the upcoming Thanksgiving Day. Wow...I thought,
that looked so much like fun. You can see some of the children and their creative work in the
picture. That is when I realized, that library serves ages 1 to 99. From the story time for pre- schoolers, to the arts and crafts for school agers, to computers for school homework to adults that
do not have internet at home, to all ages for books, movies, videos, and more. Well the list goes
on. Sometimes we forget about all the great resources we have around until we need it. I would

bad business owners. Since I purchased Sunsations in 2004, we grew our salon from 200 tanners to more than 600 tanners. “Where Looking Good Is Understood”
Most customers have been seasonal and some have been fairly loyal unless of course a salon down the road runs a special
for $5.00 less. Never the less, Sunsations has remained loyal to its customers by constantly making investments to upgrade Winter Hours
or improve the quality of service. Sunsations, under my ownership, began in the Hardin’s Florist building on Asheboro Street.
After nine prosperous months, I invested the profits along with more than $25k to relocate the Salon to the shopping center Mon to Thu 10 to 8 / Fri 10 to 6 / Sat 9 to 1 / Closed Sunday

salon, yet again people complained that $10 more dollars per month for nicer equipment than any other salon in our area
was too high. I lowered the rates and then only the regular customers continued to come and the salon still couldn’t pay the TANNING
bills. I cut jobs, cut amenities, I stopped stocking quantities of product and still people came in wanting the packages lower or Monthly Unlimited Tanning $25
they wanted, “A Deal”.In an attempt to strengthen my buying power, I bought the Climax Salon. Within 5 months we were

couldn’t correct. On September 29th I locked the doors and with an extremely heavy heart, I walked away. I returned to the
store every day several times a day to check for notes on the door. I have called every customer as soon as I received the HAIR
notes. I have not avoided a single call from any customer yet I have gotten a few calls from certain individuals stating I have Bring In Coupon And Receive $5 Off Perm Or Color
taken advantage of them and all of my customers. Some of these remarks have been very hurtful and disturbing to my-self
and my family. The sad part is that the majority of these comments have come from the same people that always wanted
something for nothing or a better “Deal”. I saw every customer not as a
client but a friend. I tried to treat every customer, client or friend equally,
fairly and with respect and in return, I have been labeled a swindler.
Maybe these people could tell that to the families of the people that I
helped pay for their funerals in Liberty because they were unable to
afford a proper burial. Tell that to the members of the Freedom Family
Church where I donated the bouncy unit for the community Fall Festival.
Tell it to the Liberty Elementary Football Team that I donated money to
help pay for uniforms. Tell it to the Christmas Parade Comity to whom I
donated candy for the parade. Tell it to the local church I donated Christ-
mas wreaths for their church doors and the five needy families I donated
Christmas trees in 2007 so they could enjoy the spirit of Christmas. Tell
it to Eastern Randolph High School and Providence Grove High School
Band Boosters from whom I buy ads or donated money or U-Haul trucks
for different functions to benefit their schools. Tell it to the people I fi-
nanced cars to and when they couldn’t make the payment I signed the
title over because I understood where they came from. As for the
“Salon”, tell it to the 80 plus Climax customers I gave a free month of
tanning to come to Liberty and tan or a free $30 bottle of lotion after we
closed the Climax location. Maybe if everyone took into account the
history of a person or the circumstances leading up to a person’s current
situation, we as people would be more understanding or show a little
consideration for an attempt to correct a problem. Unfortunately we live
in a society of gossip, self concern and individualism. Last but not least
I leave you all with not doubt of my plans. I hope to reopen the salon and
video store in December. I have no intention on refunding any customer
for tanning time purchased. If I do it for one I should do it for all and I am
not in a financial position to do this. I will however, honor any unused time a customer had effective September 29, 2009 and
forward. I will most likely provide those people with extra time but that amount of time has not yet been determined. I am very
sorry for any inconvenience this has caused any customer, client or friend. To those that have spread such terrible rumors, I

Charles Manly Wingate from Wake Forest Col-

Monroe wanted to go to college but couldn’t afford the tuition. The president
of Wingate College told young Jesse Helms to come on, they could figure out
